Flower Fields
 allows ratings
This category is for locations where a large field of flowers can be viewed. There are cultivated fields, abandoned pastures, wildflower preserves and unknown out of the way locations. All are welcome.
Expanded Description:

Typically the best time to view these fields would be annually each spring, but depending upon the species there may be multiple blooms. When in bloom these fields are a wonder to see.

In all cases these fields are a fragile ecosystem and should not be entered except along established trails. Under no circumstances should the flowers be picked. This not only would ruin the experience for the next visitor, but also reduce the number of seeds for the next year's bloom

To qualify the field must:

  1. have a showy reproductive display (flowers and other displays at the officer's discression);
  2. Be about half the size of a football (american or international) field;
  3. Occur at least annually;
  4. Be at least 1 mile (1.6 km) from another location; and
  5. Publicly accessable (no residences);

Instructions for Posting a Flower Fields Waymark:
In order to be accepted each listing must include
  1. The phrase "For the preservation of this locality, collection or picking is prohibited" in bold;
  2. The predominant species
  3. Habitat type (optional, but add when someone provides it in the logs)
  4. Parking location
  5. Terrain difficulty
  6. Recent picture of the field in bloom
  7. A closeup photo of one of the predominant flowers, if possible.
If logs show that the waymarked flower field no longer meets the criteria set above, please take the initiative to archive it yourself. It will be archived by the category managers otherwise. Locations with annuals will be evaluated accordingly.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Your log must be more than an "I visited it" or "Been there."
